AMOS-17 was successfully launched August 6, 2019 by a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

It will be located at 17 degrees East where it will reach across the African continent, along with the Middle East and Africa.

Once operational, AMOS-17 will be the most advanced high-throughput satellite to provide satellite communication services to Africa.


At a Glance

Coverage: Africa, the Middle East, and Europe

Beams:  Ka-band, Ku-band and C-Band services.

Life Expectancy: Over 15 years, 2034

AMOS-17 will operate from 17° East and will expand and strengthen Spacecom’s coverage of the growing satellite service markets in Africa, the Middle East and Europe. AMOS-17 will offer Ka-band, Ku-band, and C-Band services.

AMOS-17 C-band uniquely combines the benefits of HTS – High Throughput Satellite, with C-band’ superior service availability, making it the best match for any Sub-Sahara project.

AMOS-17 will be a state-of-the-art multi-band high-throughput satellite, utilizing Boeing’s advanced digital processor platform, that will provide reliable and flexible satellite solutions and offer a significant competitive advantage for our customers.

It will have a combination of broad regional beams and high throughput spot beams to maximize throughput and spectral efficiency.

The combination of the inherent flexibility of the digital platform with the mix of fixed and steerable beams ensures fast response to changing customers’ needs.

The AMOS-17 satellite will provide a great fit for Spacecom’s expansion strategy, offering an innovative design with capabilities that provide flexible service offerings to meet the growing demands of our customers.

AMOS-17 will enhance our capabilities as a growing and customer focused satellite operator.
